12 College Campuses Caught Up in the Gun Control Debate

No matter what state regulations dictate, college and university officials, faculty, staff, students, parents, and everyday taxpayers all have something to say about whether or not concealed handguns and other weaponry should be allowed on campus. Compelling arguments exist along the spectrum, but specific schools in particular seem to pop out whenever the subject materializes — sometimes, of course, for matters outside their control.

    In light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary, it is time to re-read a 1997 report from CDC (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00046149.htm): “CDC analyzed data on childhood [less than 15 years of age] homicide, suicide, and firearm-related death in the United States and 25 other industrialized countries…. The firearm-related homicide rate in the United States was nearly 16 times higher than that in all of the other countries combined; the firearm-related suicide rate was nearly 11 times higher; and the unintentional firearm-related death rate was nine times higher.” Fortunately, firearms deaths of children in the United States ( http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/wisqars ), after peaking at 935 in 1993, fell to 426 by 2000. Since that year, roughly 400 children have died from guns every year, leaving the United States with a childhood firearms death rate that is several times the average seen in other industrialized countries. This is the price that American children pay for our current firearms practices. For their sake as well as ours, how can we do better?
